Hello! I’m at Arlanda waiting for my flight. Will probably spend the next 15 hours + offline so I need to get as much as I can before I get on the plane. Will fly to Paris and from there to Buenos Aires.
This is the first time in so many weeks that I will get a chance to just sit down and do nothing! I’m really looking forward to it. The past four weeks I’ve been both working at MTG as usual and doing an internship at DDB. Also I had a lot of interviews squeezed in between jobs. I haven’t slept more than 5-6 hours a night for the past two weeks. But I had a lot of fun while doing it so it actually didn’t feel that hard! I love what I do! It’s awesome working with something I enjoy doing so much. I have a lot of fun things planned for the flight too. I have Conversational Capital by Sid Lee and How to win Friends and influence people to read and I will write blog posts about them. Of course I will do some reading on Argentina and the people I’m going to meet there! That’s probably what I’m looking forward to the most, to finally get to meet all the people we will be working with!
I also have my notebook with me too (diary sounds to girly to call it, notebook is better, more mature :)). Going to do some reflection on everything that has happened during the past weeks and the year at Hyper Island. A lot of things have happened, I have learned so much and I’m so much more happy about myself than I was before. For the first time I feel like I have something to be proud of, I like myself and I feel that I’m the person I want to be! Just need to remember to keep my head cool and not become too content about myself, that could easily make med feel that I don’t have to fight anymore and that would be the end of this great flow. To think about one self too much would also steel attention from everything that’s going on around me, as a planner I have to listen constantly to keep up with everything that is going on. It’s so important to always stay humble and remember that there is always someone who is better than you and that you are never better than your last project.
I’m suspecting that I will fly business class, nice! Never done that before. I’m going to behave like kid in a candy store. Today I’m wearing my dirty converse and frayed leather jacket, feels totally right in business class 🙂 (on the way out my dad asked me worried if I brought some proper business clothes. Of course I did – suites, shirts and black shoes. I can look proper when I need to, don’t worry.)
See you in Buenos Aires!
